If you have worked in a library for any measure of time, your budget has been cut. Continually, library administration is asked to do more with less, or at the least, to do the same with less. While smaller libraries have historically been the main target of budget cuts, larger libraries are now experiencing unprecedented budget cuts as well. This presentation will look at practical ways our library and other libraries have dealt with budget and staffing cuts. The presentation will also look at budget management from a business standpoint, as well as trends and information in the greater library community. Budget cuts, whether for personnel, services, or resources, seem to be inevitable. How can libraries respond pro-actively instead of reactively? How can student workers be used for additional library tasks? How can we effectively defend our current budgets to our administration?
